Summer Games Done Quick 2021 will include two blindfolded speedruns

I’ve never really understood the appeal of speedruns. I respect the effort and ingenuity required to pull them off—finishing Fallout: New Vegas in under 15 minutes is definitely an accomplishment—but it’s not something I’d want to sit and watch for hours on end. Lots of other people feel differently, though, and thus we have events like Summer Games Done Quick, the week-long speedrun extravaganza for charity that will return on July 4.

This year’s event will once again be entirely online because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and will feature a diverse array of games, many of which aren’t obvious candidates for speedruns. The very first game, for instance, is the 100-hour RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition, which according to speedrun.com can be wrapped up in under 30 minutes if you know what you’re doing. Max Payne 2, which has an almost identical speedrun record time despite being a much shorter game, is on the list as well.
